We’ve heard you loud and clear that we need to do a better job making it easier to get started with Ember. Specific plans include:
- We’re actively working on a Getting Started Guide with live examples that walks the user through building a new application from scratch
- We’re writing the script for a short screencast introducing the framework and illustrating how it works that will be prominently displayed on the homepage.
- We’re continuing to improve our guides to talk through areas, like the naming conventions we use in Ember, that might be confusing for new developers.
- The Starter Kit will return, giving developers a one-click way to try out Ember. (We removed it temporarily to bring it up to date with the most recent idioms, but it will be coming back very soon. This was a hard decision that sucked, but leaving around an out of date starter kit seemed worse than removing it.)
Here’s what we’d like to hear from you:
- How can existing documentation be improved?
- Other than what we’ve listed above, what more can we do to smooth the on-ramp?
- What work would you be willing to volunteer to help us achieve those goals?
Thank you guys so much for being part of the Ember community. I look forward to getting your assistance building the best possible developer tools for the web.
